Participating in a vision for 2023

Each year seems to begin with a sense of hope. A time of reflection for many people. Many people reflect on the past year and envision what the coming year could look like. People make New Year’s resolutions with the hope that they can do better.

This is on the back of Advent and Christmas; a time when we remember the coming of Jesus. When he came, he brought to the world a new hope and a new vision.

Jesus cast his vision when he summed up the laws of God. When asked which was the greatest commandment, Jesus responded.

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40).

This is the vision that Jesus cast for the world, that we would love God with all our beings and love other people as we do ourselves.

CBM Australia shares in this vision. Our vision is for an inclusive world in which all people with disabilities enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential.

We believe that when people with disabilities are empowered, people around them benefit.

Imagine if people all around the world shared in this vision. How many communities would be enriched?

Here are some ways you can partner with us and participate in our vision for an inclusive world where people with disabilities can enjoy their human rights and reach their potential.

Together, we can ensure that 2023 sees progress made towards a more inclusive world.
